Dadar Beach

Dadar - Prabhadevi Beach in Mahim Bay, Mumbai is one of few public beaches in Mumbai. The quality and the area of the beach have been steadily degrading due to in-appropriate building of houses and compound walls too close to the beach, combined with the natural erosion of the beach. A group of concerned citizens represented by P.K. Das & Associates has prepared a restoration project, which includes nourishment of the existing beach in order to widen the beach area. P. K. Das & Associates has commissioned DHI Water & Environment (DHI) to make a coastal study including wave and hydraulic modelling with the objectives of studying beach stability and providing design data for the new beach. Recommendations of grain size, beach slope and beach orientation for the new beaches has been listed in the report.
